Show your gratitude
Make your own thank you card
Show your ‘Attitude of Gratitude’!
Think of someone who is special in your life, or perhaps someone who has recently done something kind to help you (Maybe your big brother helped you with your homework, or your classmate invited you to join in their footy game at lunchtime).
Show your thanks by clicking on the image below to download and print your thank you card.
Once printed, simply fold in half to make a card.
There is space to add your own illustration on the front of the card and you can write your message on the inside.
When finished, share your card with your special person to make them smile!
*Tip: Cardboard rather than paper is a great option for this activity.
Just like one of our biggest stars of the Melbourne Football Club, Daisy Demon, our bodies and brains need plenty of sleep - and not just before game day!
Print out a set of colouring-in sheets, featuring our mascots Daisy, Check and Flash.
Ways to stay healthy
Whether you're young or old, looking after our physical health is just as important as our mental health.
Here are some ways you can look after yourself.
Ways to be mindful
How are you feeling today? Concentrating on something like colouring in can help when you are feeling anxious or stressed.
Why not take some time to sit, relax and focus on colouring the image below, created especially for us by Freya from St Roch’s Primary School!
What makes you happy?
Did you know that Jack Viney loves his dog, Sebastian, Jake Lever loves to travel and Clayton Oliver loves….(shhh…) chocolate?!
These are some of the things that our players are grateful for because they make them HAPPY.
We’d love you to share with us some of the things in your world that make YOU happy…
Tell us what makes you happy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for your chance to be featured on this page!
Here are some examples:
